The court also said that of the Rs. 25 Lakh, Rs. 10 lakh to be given to the victim and Rs. 15 lakh to be indulged in settlement of the prosecution expenses.

If Sengar fails to pay the fine, it is to be recovered by the Uttar Pradesh State by selling the property of Sengar under Section 421 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (CrPC) (Warrant for levy of fine).

The court directed the CBI to take appropriate measures to ensure the life and safety of the victim and her family.

He died in the judicial custody itself on April 9, 2018.

Sengar was convicted for commission of offences under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 (IPC) and Sections 5(c) and 6 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012. The court also proved that the rape survivor was minor and Sengar sexually assaulted her intentionally.
